The reading is from James 1:16-25 and continues on the short series of prayer and spiritualty. This time looking at how prayer and the deepening of spirituality is closely linked to a life of change and turning, of repentance and moral reflection and a reorientation toward the light . Changing circumstances require a change and a readiness to respond. Our relationship with God can enable this. As society and culture changes new moral choices are required. Yet we are not constantly changing our minds and spinning round to suit our situation as there are times to stand our moral ground but there are many times to change by small degrees. Prayer and reflection on God’s word help ( re) orientate ourselves to the Light of God. As the potter moulds the clay as it is by being tuned in the potters hand our lives are shaped and formed by God hand in our lives living in the acceptance of God’s timing in the light of disappointments.
